Winter Reading

Winter Reading Challenge Graphic Header with the text: "Cozy up to a good story with Winter Reading. Read 12/12 - 2/12 to win free books & more!"

Winter Reading is here, so register today!

From December 12th to February 12th, you can earn a chance to win free books and our grand prize. All you need to do…is read!

You can sign up to participate from December 12th through December 23rd by visiting the library or using the online form on this page. The final day to register is January 13th.

Everyone of every age is invited! After you register, you can pick up a Winter Reading bag that includes a reading log, which you'll use to track your reading. Simply turn it in to be eligible for our prize drawings. 

How to Participate

We want you to read—it doesn’t matter what! Physical books, graphic novels, ebooks, even listening to audiobooks counts. Check out some of our recommendations in the book river below! When you register, we’ll give you the appropriate bag for your age category:

  • Babies (0-35 months)
  • Children (3-5 years)
  • Children (6-8)
  • Children (9-12)
  • Teens (13-17)
  • Adults (18 and older)

Then, all you have to do is read age-appropriate books for your category, track them on the log that comes in your bag, and turn that log in at the end of our Winter Reading program!

If you prefer digital reading for any reason, give our apps a try! Visit our digital resources (Link to database, filter: Stream & Download) page to get started with Libby, Hoopla, Freading, or Tumblebooks; all you need is your library card, and we’re happy to help you out in person or over the phone. There’s never been a better time to try them out (especially since they have separate borrowing limits)!


Eligibility for prizes is determined by the number of age-appropriate books each participant reads. All babies will automatically get two (2) free books! Other age categories must log a minimum amount of reading in order to earn two (2) free books for that category:

  • Children (3-5 years): 5 or more books
  • Children (6-8): 3 or more books
  • Children (9-12): 2 or more books
  • Teens (13-17): 2 or more books
  • Adults (18 and older): 3 or more books

Children, Teens, and adults who read five (5) or more age-appropriate books will be entered into our grand prize drawing: In addition to the free books they can already earn, they’ll have a chance to snag a CoffeeTree Books gift card!

We’ll announce our winners on social media at the end of the program, and prize pickup will be from February 20th through February 24th.
